We offer a unique opportunity to improve your business skills, explore a new career, improve your academic experience, or research and write on a topic for which you never have enough time. You will be surrounded by Montana's stunning landscapes and a dynamic mix of people who will punctuate each week with lively and stimulating lectures and seminars on a remarkably wide array of topics. PERC is especially interested in natural resource issues--water, wildlife, public lands, forestry--to mention a few.
